About PM Independent Surveyors - Surveyors in Bedford (MK41 7RR)
Based in Bedfordshire I cover the entire south east of England, The east of England and also the midlands.
I am an experienced and independent surveyor specialising in diagnosing damp and timber defects. I provide detailed and easy to understand survey reports which include the evdeince from the inspection and remedial reccomendations.
I am not a contractor, I do not have any links to contractors. I do not undertake any remedial works. All my investigations/surveys and reports are completely impartial and independent.
Many damp contractors offer free or reduced surveys; but it must be remembered that they are also trying to sell you work so are not necessarily offering impartial and independent advice.

My report will advise you on estimated costs and give sound professional advice on the works that will be incurred, in the form of reccomednations within the report.

Pre Purchase Damp Surveys:
When buying a property the general building surveyor will often advise the buyer that a damp and timber specialist investigates the property to ascertain its condition after he has picked up high readings of moisture, or areas of concern within the property. When this happens, a specialist damp and timber surveyor will then come and inspect the property and conduct a more thorough detailed inspection. Often, during these inspections we have found that many of the buildings we inspect do not require any remedial work. The general building surveyor has simply recorded high readings of moisture on his moisture metre, but that does not mean to say that there requires to be any remedial works carried out. The moisture metre is a very good tool used by many surveyors, including ourselves. However, the surveyor’s knowledge and experience in the damp and timber preservation industry is also paramount.
This is what I specialise in and my reports are often used by mortgage lenders to get an overall picture of what work is required, how extensive and what the likely cost is going to incur.
As an independent surveyor, you can always rest assured that my reports are completely impartial and we will not be stating that work should be carried out when it is not necessary.
